We were a little concerned about taking a city break in the city of Seven Hills with a wheelchair, but we need not have worried. Our experience was that Rome is very welcoming to people with restricted mobility and we were met with thoughtfulness and gentle assistance/guidance wherever we went. For the Edward Hopper Exhibition we turned up on the... More

The Vittoriano is the huge white marble monument in front of the Piazza Venezia. This monument is known by many names: Monument to Victor Emanuele II, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Vittoriano Complex, and Altar of the Fatherland. Fondly, it is also known as “the wedding cake” and “the typewriter.” It was built between 1885 and 1911 to celebrate the... More

This is an excellent monument located near piazza Campidellio and you can walk from here to coliseum and enjoy your time and also there are wonderful places and cafes to rest and have a break.

This huge building is quite spectacular. It is free to enter as long as you agree not to eat or sit on the steps as it is a memorial. You can walk around the back of the building and see spectacular views. We didn't take the elevator to the roof but still thought the views were great.

Very nice monument; did not see the exhibit and since my hotel was close by I had multiple chances to see it. Best viewed at night; also some nice photo opportunities of the Roman ruins at sunset in the adjacent areas behind Santa Maria di Loreto.

The Star Wars exhibition is really expensive for what it is. It's basically a collection of figures rather than anything else the staff imagine it to be. The Hopper exhibition is also expensive but at least there is more to see, with text and audioguides explaining extra details to you. Sadly, the exhibition book is unavailable in English which is...

As you walk around the corner, this hugely impressive building comes into view. You do wonder how on earth these buildings are ever constructed such is the splendour. Well worth going to the top of the building in the lift to get a superb view over Rome.

In addition to the complex itself, which has been more than adequately reviewed here, the Edward Hopper retrospective at Complesso del Vittoriano is well worth seeing before it closes on February 2, 2017. The curatorial vision for the exhibition of the American master’s paintings, drawings and prints is thorough—even if many of his “greatest hits” like “The Nighthawks” are not... More

The Complesso Del Vittoriani is about 35 minutes walk from the main bus station (Termini). The structure itself, as well as the other archeological sites nearby, are truly magnificent. It also offers amazing views of the city. There is a lot of armed security on site so is also safe to visit. Highly recommended

Staying in Piazza Venezia / Ancient City

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
